Project Description:
Bristol Myer Squibb chose 100 Binney Street in Cambridge to locate its state of the art scientific research facility. The site is part of Alexandria Center at Kendall Square, a 1.7 million square foot science and technology campus within the burgeoning Bio-Medical community in the Kendall Square area of Cambridge. A perimeter slurry wall was installed through the marine deposits and into the glacial till, acting both as the permanent wall and as a groundwater cutoff. Jet grouting was conducted in a portion of the site to stabilize DNAPL impacted soils and to help to mitigate DNAPL-related odors during excavation. The three level basement was braced during construction with cross lot and corner bracing, using embedded horizontal walers within the slurry wall.
